Cheese Chowder

So rich and delicious!


  • 1/4 cup finely chopped onion
  • 2 Tbsp. butter or margarine
  • 1/4 cup flour
  • 2 cup milk
  • 1 13 3/4 oz can chicken (not condensed)
  • Ad
  • 1/4 cup finely diced carrots
  • 1/4 cup finely diced celery
  • dash of salt and paprika
  • 1/2 cup cubed American cheese or 10 slices


Cook onion in butter until tender.Blend in flour. Add remaining ingredients except cheese.

Cook and stir until thick and bubbly. Reduce heat and add the cheese, stir to melt.

Simmer 15 minutes.

May add 1 cubed boiled potato and double the cheese for a thicker chowder. Try smoked Swiss cheese for a great smoky twang.
